The Patrimony moon phase retrograde date model, presented in 2017 in white and pink gold versions, is one of Vacheron Constantin’s signature watches. Its understated elegance and the originality of its display embody the Maison’s identity at first glance. Three years after its launch, this timepiece with its pleasing proportions is enriching the Collection Excellence Platine concept with a 50-piece limited boutique edition.

With its “Collection Excellence Platine” concept launched in 2006, Vacheron Constantin produces exceptional watches for collectors. Ranging from the simplest to the most complicated, all are offered in limited editions at a rate of one or two models per year. As its name suggests, their distinctive feature is 950 platinum, the watches being crafted in this noble metal from case to dial including the buckle while even the midnight blue alligator leather strap is hand-stitched with platinum and silk threads.

This year, the elegant Patrimony moon phase retrograde date watch presented for the first time in 2017 will be the centrepiece of this exceptional collection. Its timelessly elegance 42.5 mm round case houses the self-winding Manufacture 2460 R31L calibre with a precision moon phase, a mechanism requiring a one-day correction only once every 122 years, along with a retrograde pointer-type date display.
